Hellion first-person space survival Early Access release date

hellion first-person space survival early access release date debut

So indie developer Zero Gravity just #announced that the countdown for their #debut title Hellion has begun. So a lot of Linux gamers are keen to get their hands on #multiplayer first-person space survival game. As our previous posts states, Hellion will be available on Windows PC first. Since the game releases on Steam Early Access on February 24th. So Hellion’s open world first-person space survival game will pit players against the perils of desolate wastelands.
Hence the devastated paradise of the first interstellar colony of humankind. After waking up after a life long journey in a cryopod. So then players set out on a journey exploring Hellion‘s derelict spaceships and ruined outposts. While trying to strike a balance between survival and the attempt to uncover what happened. Where the man-made paradise-turned-into-graveyard of humanity’s hopes.

“We are happy to announce that Hellion will be coming to Steam Early Access this February”, said Marko Smiljanic, Creative Director at Zero Gravity. “This first phase of development allows us to gather feedback from our players. So then we can implement the most desired features in the final release. Turning Hellion into the ultimate first-person open world experience with realistic player communication. A full Newtonian physics and immersive storyline”.

Are you considering Linux, Mac, Xbox, PS4 or any other port?

“We are not considering support for other platforms for the early access release. We are however considering porting the game to other platforms in the future.”

“The game is still not fully optimised so we can’t talk about frame rates.

We fully support your Linux Game Consortium’s initiative for Linux gamers.”

So not to worry, the official FAQ states something similar:

What about Mac/Linux?
Not yet. It will be supported in the future.

The Hellion Early Access debut build will offer hand-crafted content. Including procedurally generated elements that will create a meaningful narrative as well as make the gameplay varied.  Making the first-person space survival replayable beyond player interaction. In order to survive, colonists will have to loot and fight for limited life support resources, such as oxygen and food, as well as repair and fuel their deteriorating base station and spaceship. Cooperation with other players, at least temporarily, will be unavoidable in order to run bigger ships and survive in the hostile environment. However, in the Hellion galaxy it’s every man for himself, so betrayal sometimes is the best strategy in surviving the adversities of space and conquering the galaxy.

For this unique multiplayer debut experience the Zero Gravity team plan to introduce a series of features. Including a complex resource gathering system, a detailed crafting system, unique damage and degradation models for systems and equipment, complex maintenance systems for ships, stations and equipment – all of which are fully modular and customizable – and an immersive background story that needs to be explored in order to reveal the truth behind the devastation of Hellion.

Linux port update January 27th:

We are still working on optimization and testing for PC version. Linux is on standby for now.

It’s coming on February 24, PC version. We have posted the list of features that will be in Early Access release version of the game. The price is yet to be decided.

Hellion will be available on Steam Early Access on February 24th. For more information, please visit the Hellion Steam Page.
